African Herbsman [Bonus Tracks]


African Herbsman [Bonus Tracks]


$7.57


Personnel: Bob Marley, Peter Tosh, Bunny Wailer, Tommy McCook, The Upsetters. Producers: Lee Scratch Perry, Bob Marley. Compilation producer: David Katz. Includes liner notes by Dave Katz. One of Bob Marley & the Wailers’ finest collections, AFRICAN HERBSMAN belongs alongside CATCH A FIRE and NATTY DREAD as an essential Marley recording. There are three reasons why AFRICAN HERBSMAN is significant. For starters, it is a treasure trove of some of Marley’s best songs. Though these tunes were written and recorded in the early 1970s, Marley would revisit them-in concert and in re-recordings-throughout his career. The celebratory Lively Up Yourself, the winsome and wise Small Axe, the swaying Don’t Rock the Boat, and the escapist dream Kaya, are only a few of the gleaming gems here. More importantly, perhaps, AFRICAN HERBSMAN captures the Wailers at their peak as a band. With Bunny Livingston and Peter Tosh’s high, sweet harmonies prominent throughout, and the Barrett brothers’ impeccable rhythms, the Wailers are an unstoppable unit (and provide a focus lost on some of Marley’s solo albums). But the most distinguishing quality of these sessions is Lee Scratch Perry’s remarkable, unique production. Unlike the rock-oriented sound of the Chris Blackwell-produced CATCH A FIRE (released the same year), HERBSMAN has pure Jamaican roots-on top of the fine material and performances-making it one of the defining documents of reggae.

Atomic [Slipcase] *


Atomic [Slipcase] *


$11.14


Audio Mixer: Tony Doogan. Recording information: Castle of Doom Studios, Glasgow. In their own ways, Zidane and Les Revenants are some of Mogwai’s finest work, so it makes sense that Atomic – an album based on their music for the BBC 4 documentary Atomic: Living in Dread and Promise and their first release after the departure of John Cummings – follows suit. The band’s tenth album recalls not only Zidane and Les Revenants but the fearsome sweep of Jhann Jhannsson’s Fordlandia, another unflinching look at humankind’s capacity to discover and create equally constructive and destructive technology. Even separated from the documentary’s imagery, Atomic contains the wonder and horror of breakthroughs like x-rays and MRI scans as well as nuclear disasters like Chernobyl and Fukushima. Ether begins the album with sparkling arpeggios and a trumpet that sounds like the dawning of a new age, while Fat Man (named for the bomb that was detonated over Nagasaki) closes it with ominously echoing piano. SCRAM falls somewhere in between, its loping beat and strobing melody recalling Boards of Canada at their most enigmatically beautiful. There’s a weighty undercurrent to almost all of Atomic’s songs, whether in their deliberate paces or substantial low ends, that reflects the album’s somber origins. The crushing drums on Pripyat, which was inspired by the town devastated by the Chernobyl accident, convey a primal sense of awe, while the fearsome majesty of Bitterness Centrifuge nods to the band’s metal leanings. Indeed, the ways Mogwai borrow from their other career highlights without obviously recycling are impressive: the hushed, bittersweet warmth of Are You a Dancer? calls to mind their early singles, while pulsing tracks like U-235 and Little Boy sound like they could have been on Rave Tapes. They’re also relatively restrained with their signature climaxes, only unleashing one on the towering Tzar. Ambitious and masterful, Atomic is another peak in Mogwai

Beneath the Raptor's Wing


Beneath the Raptor’s Wing


$4.99


At the start of the twenty-first century, unconditional war swept across the Earth. A war that engulfed the great and the small, the rich and the poor, giving no quarter. Each side strove for unconditional victory, and as battle built upon battle, the living began to envy the dead. Chastised by the cataclysm that they had unleashed, the governments of Earth came together. Humanity vowed to put an end to war and to strive for the betterment of every living creature. A united Earth created Starfleet, an interstellar agency whose mission was to explore the cosmos, to come in peace for all mankind. It was a na?ve wish that was battered by interstellar realities, yet man persists in the belief that peace is the way. Banding together with other powers to form a Coalition of Planets, humanity hopes that the strength each can offer the other will allow for peaceful exploration. However, the rise of the Coalition strikes dread within the Romulan Star Empire. They feel its growing reach will cut them off from what is rightfully theirs. The Romulans know that the alliance is fragile, that the correct strategy could turn allies into foes. Perfecting a way of remotely controlling Coalition ships and using them as weapons against one another, the Romulans hope to drive a wedge of suspicion and mistrust between these new allies. One Starfleet captain uncovers this insidious plot: Jonathan Archer of the Enterprise. Determined not to lose what they have gained, outmanned and outgunned, the captains of Starfleet stand tall, vowing to defend every inch of Coalition space until the tide begins to turn. The Romulans now plan to strike at what they see as the heart of their problem. With nothing left to lose, the Romulan Star Empire engages in all-out war against humanity, determined once and for all to stop the human menace from spreading across the galaxy.

Slovenly drummer Robert Fish Fishman (THE OFFICE’s Rainn Wilson) is booted out of his 1980s hair metal band, Vesuvius, right as they’re signed to a big label, crushing his dreams and leading to a 20-year stretch of office park employment. A second chance comes in the form of his overweight teenage keyboardist nephew (Josh Gad) who needs an emergency drummer for his band’s gig at the prom. It’s an odd match-an ’80s metal guy in a teen emo-lite band (their name is A.D.D.)-but he’s soon offering fatherly counsel to fatherless boy singer Curtis (Teddy Geiger), giving hair gel tips to the foxy bassist (Emma Stone), and working to get the band a club gig. Soon A.D.D. is signed to the same label as Vesuvius, poised for major MTV-stardom, all leading to a big arena spot as the opening band for the dreaded Vesuvius. Fish needs to overcome his tantrum-throwing ways and step up to the kit, if he wants to impress Curtis’s hot mom (Christina Applegate) and outrock his former colleagues. A cross between rock star fantasia la SCHOOL OF ROCK and the Will Ferrell School of man-child comedy, THE ROCKER benefits from tight editing and pretty decent songs. Real-life musician Geiger saves some rough stretches with his easygoing charisma, while Peter Best (the drummer dropped from the Beatles and hence the quintessential dumped drummer) makes a cameo. It’s directed by Peter Cattaneo of THE FULL MONTY

The Creeps


The Creeps

In this delightfully imaginative novel, once again, hell threatens to break loose as Samuel Johnson and his ragtag group of friends must defend their town from shadowy forces more threatening than ever before. In this clever and quirky follow-up to The Gates and The Infernals, Samuel Johnson’s life seems to have finally settled down?after all, he?s still got the company of his faithful dachshund, Boswell, and his bumbling demon friend, Nurd; he has foiled the dreaded forces of darkness not once, but twice; and he?s dating the lovely Lucy Highmore, to boot. But things in the little English town of Biddlecombe rarely run smoothly for long. Shadows are gathering in the skies, a black heart of pure evil is bubbling with revenge, and it rather looks as if the Multiverse is about to come to an end, starting with Biddlecombe. When a new toy shop?s opening goes terrifyingly awry, Samuel must gather a ragtag band of dwarfs, policemen, and very polite monsters to face down the greatest threat the Multiverse has ever known, not to mention assorted vampires, a girl with an unnatural fondness for spiders, and highly flammable unfriendly elves. The latest installment of John Connolly?s wholly original and creepily imaginative Samuel Johnson Tales, The Creeps is humorous horror for anyone who enjoys fiction at its best.

The Dreadful Hours [Digipak]


The Dreadful Hours [Digipak]

My Dying Bride: Aaron (vocals); Andrew, Hamish (guitar); Adrian (bass guitar); Shaun (drums). While they faltered a little bit toward the late ’90s, doom/death metal pioneers My Dying Bride seemed to get a new lease on life (or should that be death?) with 1999’s excellent The Light at the End of the World, and The Dreadful Hours builds on that momentum. Like The Light, this is very much a guitar-based album; there are no violins like on their earliest albums, nor are there any electronic forays such as those on 34.7888% Complete. Also, the keyboards are used sparingly (and tastefully – these guys could teach some other goth metal bands a lesson). The first three tracks showcase the band’s diversity and songwriting strength at their best, moving from the quiet, thunderstorm-accompanied guitar introduction of the title track to the galloping death metal riffing later in that same song, then proceeding to the especially bitter and venomous vocals on The Raven and the Rose and the mournful guitar breaks on Le Figlie Della Tempesta. The rest of the album isn’t quite on the same level as these opening tracks, but throughout the band still shows a real knack for alternating clean and distorted guitar passages and also for using a variety of tempos (although they seldom get especially fast) as well as vocal styles (e.g, growled, sung, spoken, and occasionally screamed). This diversity, as well as the logical flow of ideas from one section to the next, enables the band to write songs that average eight or nine minutes without getting bogged down or boring. True to My Dying Bride’s trademark, The Dreadful Hours makes for a dreary, somber listening experience, but keeping that in mind, it’s also an really well-done and inspired album, especially given how far the band was into their career at this point. ~ William York
